The Fayette County Memorial Hospital Foundation recently received a donation from Enbridge in support of the organization’s efforts to fight COVID and care for patients.
With natural gas pipelines in Fayette County, Enbridge “exists to fuel people’s quality of life in the communities where we live and work. We are proud to support organizations that dedicate their time to champion community solutions in our key focus areas of safety, environment and community,” Enbridge Community Investment Team member Regan Kasman wrote in her email to the FCMH Foundation.
“Over the course of the year, our frontline healthcare workers have been dedicated to the care of our patients, we appreciate Enbridge remembering them and honoring them for the work they continue to do,” said FCMH Foundation Director Whitney Gentry.
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the Fayette County Memorial Hospital (FCMH) Foundation to put on their thinking caps to find another way to have their annual gala. This year, the organization is taking the gala virtual with the first ever Virtual Wine Tasting scheduled for Thursday, December 3 at 6:30 p.m.
A tasting package sells for $120 and includes three bottles of wine from Maize Valley Winery in Hartville, Ohio, and a can of Long Drink based in Finland.
Tasting packages can be picked up at Medical Arts Building 2 the day of the event, or for a nominal charge, can be delivered anywhere in the county. There will also be an online auction, on the hospital Facebook page, for anyone to place bids.
“Most people have participated in a virtual meeting this year, so it’s fitting that we are doing this for the gala. Proceeds from the gala go towards the Let’s Work TogethER Emergency Room Renovation campaign and is a great way to honor our healthcare heroes who have put forth such a tremendous effort this year,” said FCMH Foundation Director Whitney Gentry. “When completed the state-of-the-art emergency department will be something both they and the community deserve.”
